When you talk about package scope, do you mean you want to listen to specific call flows?

If so, then Joost is right, and this is a job for Aspect . Version 0.10 will be out today.

Here is how to print foo each time Employee::calc_* is called, but only if Company::calc_salaries exists in the call flow. So if the call flow is Test::test_employee ... Employee::calc_salary, then it will not be printed:

use Aspect; before { print 'foo' } call qr/^Employee::calc_/ & cflow company => 'Company::calc_salaries';

There is also the Listenable aspect (Aspect-0.10), for a full implementation of Observer. But because you have pointcuts, you can fire events only in some call flow. Which you cannot do with normal Observer.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
